Re: Backcountry camping - idiots setup right next to you
I have an offroad trailer so have the luxury of being able to take a fair bit of gear with me. One of the extra pieces of gear I always take with me is a second tent. The places I go are pretty remote, but if I am somewhere where there is room for another camper to fit in, that's when I setup the second tent and preemptively make it difficult or impossible for another group to fit in beside us.
I do this primarily because despite trying to train her to be nice my dog is just not good with strangers and I really don't want to see someone get bitten, and me possibly get sued.
I have thought of this - pickup a cheapie popup and stake out a bit of an area.
I'm not a greedy person - far from it. But when one just wants peace and solitude...
